The meaning of hexagram #52
This hexagram suggests finding stillness and peace amidst chaos and motion. The world is constantly in flux. But this hexagram is asking you to call into question the notion that there needs to be movement at all. Staying still in one's heart can be the ultimate destination. The wise person, who has found stillness of mind and heart, will experience no opposition at this time. This is an opportunity to meditate and gain new awareness. You will soon find that you are able to take a breather from the noise of your mind and your life. Out of deep inner stillness comes powerful action.
The changing lines between hexagram 52 and hexagram 63
Changing line #1
"Keeping Toes Still"- Before you go forward on your path, take a deep breath and stand still for a time. Be alert and aware of where you are. The wise person will have no problems because they step forward slowly and consciously from the onset.
Changing line #5
"Keeping Mouth Shut"- Less talking, quietness and silence are your best allies at this time. Employ them to help promote your peace of mind.
Changing line #6
"Noble Hearted and Still"- This line signifies attainment of true peace and freedom. The feeling of acceptance and spaciousness around inner thought processes has grown so strong that the heart will open wide, and stillness of mind results.
The future hexagram #63:
The meaning of hexagram #63
A transition from chaos to order is referenced by this hexagram. You have come a long way but the journey is not over. Like a traveler who has traversed a difficult and wide river, you appear to approach your destination. But the river bank is not the final stopping place. The most difficult work is over, but the wise person never stops moving onward in incremental steps. You are entering new territory and it will be smooth going at first. A new relationship or project will get off to the perfect beginning. But stay balanced internally and externally, or else the road ahead could become bumpy. Completion and beginning are deeply connected. Only one part of your journey is ending.
